Everyday Starlet

Month: February 2016

InstaLife

InstaLife Collage

Things have been quite hectic here at chez Starlet.  With all of the weather changes here in New England (is it Spring, is it Winter, I wish Mother Nature would make up her mind!), and my busy schedule of meetings, blogging, and wedding planning, I’ve been feeling a little under the weather lately.  So I thought I would take this opportunity to update you on my life via my Instagram… after all, if it’s didn’t happen on Instagram, did it really happen at all?

I have been deep into wedding planning, and I’m quickly approaching the 6 month mark.  I’ll be doing a full update soon, so stay tuned!

I was involved in an amazing campaign with Target to promote swimsuit body confidence (we can all use help with that).  I selected this Target tankini for my pic

I went to see Hail, Caesar with P.  It was fun and full on packed with stars.  Since it was set in 1950s Hollywood I had very high expectations, and it wasn’t quite as great as I’d hoped.. but still enjoyable.

P and I like to have a weekend show that we marathon.  When Mad Men ended (sad face emoticon), we started Numb3rs.  It’s one of my favorite shows, and I got P hooked on it.  When we finished that we decided to go the reality TV route and watch The Girls Next Door.  P has actually been to the Playboy Mansion and got to meet Hef, so it’s been fun to watch this show together and get inside scoop.  I wish I had a dime for every time P said to me, “hypothetically, if we bought the Playboy Mansion….”

Beauty Tips from Your Beauty Mark by Dita Von Teese

Beauty Tips from Your Beauty Mark by Dita Von Teese

 

I don’t think anyone anticipated the release of Your Beauty Mark by Dita Von Teese more than I did.  Dita has always been a style icon of mine with her mix of vintage and high fashion looks, combined with her 1950s makeup, and 1940s hair.  So when my fiance gave me her latest book dedicated to her beauty tips I devoured it in record time.

Since I’m such a fan of Dita’s and I’m a beauty obsessed blogger, a lot of the advice in this book I already knew.  But I wanted to share a few of Dita’s beauty tricks that I discovered for the first time in the book….

Beauty Tips from Your Beauty Mark by Dita Von Teese

Start with warm water.  Just before I wash my face in the morning, I now take a facecloth, run it under warm water, squeeze out the excess, and place it on my face for a mini steam.  It softens my skin for my morning cleanse… and it feels fabulous!… you can see my Morning Skin Care Routine in this video.

Skin care doesn’t stop at your chin.  Okay, so the ideal of continuing your skin care to your neck and chest is not a new idea.  However, it’s something I frequently forget.  I’m making the extra effort of care for my décolletage.

Meditate after your workout.  We all know how important a good workout is for your body and mind, but we’re starting to learn that mediation can be just as important.  I’ve always found it tricky to remember to meditate, but it’s the perfect way to end a great workout.

Exfoliate with an Egyptian loofah.  I haven’t actually tried this one yet, but Dita mentions many times in her book about her love of and Egyptian loofah.  And speaking of exfoliation….

Exfoliate before shaving.  It actually helps prevent ingrown hairs and will give you a smoother shave.  Make sure you’ve been in a warn shower for a little while first to soften your skin and maximize the effect… still think that shaving makes hair grow back thicker?  I’m busting this myth!

Try natural deodorant.  I was surprised to learn that Dita swears by natural deodorants. I’ve been trying some out and I’m planning a full review soon… stay tuned!

Layer nail polish.  I’ve been layering my Shellac polishes for a while now to achieve certain shades.  However I’m dying to try Dita’s favorite combo of a shimmer red layered under a classic red shade.  She says it gives the effect of a vintage car paint job.

Spray hairspray on a brush to tame flyaways.  This may be my favorite new trick.  Take a makeup brush (obviously one you just use for this purpose, but grab an inexpensive) sprayed with hairspray and smooth over your hair to tame flyaways.  This works perfectly for updos, but I do it around my part sometimes when my baby hairs need some discipline.

There are so many more beauty tips in this book!  I highly recommend picking up a copy of Your Beauty Mark by Dita Von Teese.

Beauty Tips from Your Beauty Mark by Dita Von Teese

Drugstore Dita

Dita wears a mix of high end and drugstore makeup.  I decided to do an affordable glam makeup look inspired by Ms. Von Teese herself.  Everything I used is from the drugstore and is either a product that Dita uses or a possible dupe for her favorite makeup.

Shop this look…

Some of Dita’s favorite lipsticks are Christian Louboutin (see my Louboutin lipstick review here) and LipInk (see my LipInk review here).

How to Lose Weight with Makeup: Contour & Highlight Tips for Everyone

Contour Highlighting Collage

If there is one makeup trend that has really taken over it’s contouring and highlighting.  It’s always existed… I even studied it way back in my Cosmetology school days.  But it’s never been as popular as it is now.  I’ve actually had many requests to do a tutorial on the subject.  I thought it was a little odd because there are SO many contour/highlight makeup videos out there. I always figured, why would anyone want to hear about it from me?  

That’s when I realized that so many of the contouring/highlighting videos out there are made by girls with the same face shape, and the same look, using the exact same technique.  So many people (myself included) would copy them exactly hoping to get the same “perfect” features.  In my case (and I’m sure many others), I looked overdone and sometimes even silly.

I was contouring places that didn’t need it, and overlooking areas that did. I also highlighted with pure abandon until I looked like I’d been slapped in the face by King Midas.

That’s when I realized how important it is to customize your makeup to fit your individual face.  So here are some tips for individualizing your technique and helping us full faced girls get a slimmer look…

How to Lose Weight with Makeup: Contour & Highlight Tips for Everyone

I didn’t contour my nose, because I just always feel overdone when I do.  But if you feel the need to contour yours, here are some videos that I think are great…

The Oscars Red Carpet is My Super Bowl

We’ve all probably heard the phrase, “the Oscars are the Super Bowl of Fashion.”  But this Starlet, takes that to heart.  Some people may spend the whole day (or even days or weeks) prepping/pre-gaming/obsessing over the footballs teams competing in the biggest night of sports.  But I do that for the Academy Awards!

I need my essentials…

I’ll be totally honest… I’m much less into the actual awards show than the red carpet… because that’s where the glamour is!

Here’s how I get ready for fashion’s biggest night, the Oscars Red Carpet…

It’s no secret at Burlesque Icon and Glamour Queen Dita Von Teese is one of my style icons.  I’ve read all of her books, and I read every article I can find about her.  So I was so excited that she teamed up with Mode to create this video about her signature style and her lingerie line…


I really wish I could try her bras, but alas, they do not come in my size.  But she does have a wide size range, so if you’ve tried her line I’d love to hear what you think of it!

Which Elizabeth Taylor Bride Are You?

Elizabeth Taylor Bride Collage

Ahhh Liz, she has been a bride eight times… well, I think she’s had more weddings than that actually.  Since I’m a firm believer in taking inspiration from Old Hollywood, it got me thinking about all of Dame Taylor’s wedding styles.  Each one had it’s own personality.  So it got me thinking….

Which Elizabeth Taylor Bride Are You?

Princess Bride

Liz was quite young when she married Conrad Hilton, and her wedding was every little girls’ fantasy…and her most traditional of all her weddings. If you’ve been dreaming of your wedding since you were a little Starlet, and pinning a towel to your head as a veil just to daydream, then you’re a Princess Bride.

Second Time Around Bride

After such an over-the-top first wedding, Liz decided to make her second marriage to Michael Wilding much simpler.  No bridal gown in sight, she still looked stunning in a skirt suit…. Marilyn Monroe did something similar for her marriage to Joe DiMaggio.  While there are no rules about what’s appropriate for a second marriage, if a traditional wedding has you all “been there, done that”, then you’re a Second Time Around Bride.

Jet Setter Bride

Dame Liz and her third husband Michael Todd got married in both Spain and Mexico.  If your passport has more stamps than a post office, and you are allergic to staying in one place for too long, then you’re a Jet Setter Bride.

Tweet: Which Elizabeth Taylor Bride Are You? http://bit.ly/1Tb7MTH

Understated Bride

It’s not like our Liz to go low-key, but when widowed and marrying your best friends ex-husband (that would be Debbie Reynolds and Eddie Fisher respectively), you don’t necessarily throw your wedding in everyone’s face.  Liz famously converted to Judaism for ol’ Eddie and they got married in a temple.  If you don’t like to call attention to yourself (hopefully not for the reasons listed above), then you’re an Understated Bride.

Romantic Bride

When our lady Liz married Richard Burton (both times) she was all about the romance.  She wore flowy chiffon, and flowers in her hair.  They were two artists (albeit very successful actors, but artists nonetheless). If you can’t pass a flower shop with out popping in for a bouquet, exchange poetry with your loved ones, and live for your DIY flower crown, then you’re a Romantic Bride.

Luxury Bride

When Liz married politician John Warner, she wore a fur trimmed coat and a turban…even on a farm Ms. Taylor brings the Old Hollywood Glam!  If you’ve already spent your whole wedding budget on your new shoes, so you’ll just get married at home, then you’re a Luxury Bride.

Eccentric Bride

Liz’s eighth marriage was to construction worker Larry Fortensky, and the wedding was held at Michael Jackson’s Neverland ranch.  If you’re COMPLETELY non-traditional, think a romantic date is tickets to the circus, and your most normal friend makes Marilyn Manson look like a preppy, then you’re an Eccentric Bride.

Which Elizabeth Taylor Bride are you?

Top 5 Wedding Dress Shopping Tips

Top 5 Wedding Dress Shopping Tips

Wedding dress shopping can be one of the most exciting and stressful things a Starlet will ever do.  Many Starlets have been dreaming of their bridal gown ever since they were a little girl.  You want to look classic but not boring, sexy but not trashy, unique but not tacky, and drop dead gorgeous but not like you’re trying too hard.  That’s a lot to ask of one dress!

I recently said yes to my wedding dress, and I wanted to share my top tips that I learned in the process….

Here Are My Top 5 Wedding Dress Shopping Tips….

Size matters

I don’t mean THAT… I mean the size of the group you bring.  Apparently those large groups entourages with yes/no paddles to vote on the dress are not just found on Say Yes To The Dress.  Apparently it happens everywhere, and the sales women all told me how difficult they find it for the store and the bride.  Dress shopping is overwhelming enough, you don’t need a pile of opinions that all conflict.

That said, I don’t think it’s something to do alone.  As an only child, I would have never thought of bringing anyone other than my Mom.  However, if that isn’t the right option for you then a sister, or close friend who’s opinion you trust is a great option and is on your side.  Whoever it is, make sure you talk ahead of time about what you really want for your dress and your wedding.  That way they can remind you of your vision when you fall in love with a cupcake dress and what you really wanted was a flowy beachy gown.

Try on everything

You may have dreamed of a princess dress ever since you saw your first Disney movie, but you may fall in love with a sexy mermaid dress (after all Ariel is a Disney princess too).  I’m not saying you should throw away your vision, but keep an open mind.  I’m also not saying try on everything in the store, but try on a few different shapes and fabrics. I even tried on a ballgown which I never thought I would like… I absolutely love the top, but the full skirt was just not for me.

Top 5 Wedding Dress Shopping Tips
None of these are MY DRESS, I want it to be a surprise!

The first dress shop I went to had very few dresses that fit my vision, but I tried on a few and learned something new with each dress I tried on.

The second dress shop I went to had a few more dresses that fit my vision, but after trying on what felt like a million dresses, none of them had my heart.  When I was emotionally drained and ready to give up, another sales girl mentioned that they had just received a new shipment of dresses that hadn’t even made it to the floor yet. She’s been dying to see them on a bride and she thought one may be my style.  I was exhausted and hesitant, but I was already there so I figured why not.  One of those dresses ended up being my dress.  So you never know… when in doubt, try it on.

Keep it real

We’re all real people, with real bodies.  We’re all beautiful but in our own unique way.  I don’t always actually feel that way about myself, but that’s the mantra you need to repeat to yourself when dress shopping.  Clothes shopping in general can do a number on your ego, and wedding dress shopping is that times a million.  Here are a few things to keep in mind in regards to wedding dresses and body image…

  • Wedding dress sizes are not regular dress sizes.  You will have to size up possibly 2-4 sizes.  Don’t let that get to you, it’s what we all have to do.
  • Know your body type and your best features.  I had Pinned a bunch of slinky sheath dresses, but deep down I knew they wouldn’t work on me.  I also had to rule out a few dresses I loved from the front because the back was just too low for my comfort zone.  That’s okay, because I found a dress that, as my grandmother used to say, accentuates the positive.  I’d say focus on the feeling that you want the dress to have (Glamorous, Modern, Traditional, Romantic, etc) but find it in a shape that flatters your body.
  • Do your hair and makeup.  You don’t necessarily have to go all out like you will on your wedding day, but you’ll feel more polished and feel better about staring at yourself in a mirror for hours.
  • If the dress doesn’t make you feel beautiful, move on.  It’s your day, and you should feel like the Starlet that you truly are!

You may not cry…

…and that’s okay.  Even if you’re a crier like me, you may not well up in your dress.  I didn’t and I couldn’t figure out why.  I thought I was supposed to.  Here’s a few reasons I think I didn’t…

  • I tend to cry when I’m frustrated, overwhelmed, tired, stresses, hungry, and plenty of other times.  I don’t tend to cry when I’m happy.  I don’t know if I’ll cry at my wedding, possibly, but I didn’t cry when P proposed.  Maybe I wasn’t meant to be a wedding dress crier.
  • While the sales women were very helpful, they were still sales people.  The lawyer’s daughter in me tends to get very poker faced around sales people so as not to reveal my attachment to something and have the price go up.
  • I almost cried earlier in the appointment because I was frustrated, overwhelmed, tired, stresses, hungry, etc.

Either way, I’m confident I found the right dress even without the water works. And on that note…

You’ll know when you found the one

You probably knew when you found your mate, and you will know when you’ve found your dress.  Whether it be tears, a smile, or some other type of reaction, you will not actually pick your dress, it will pick you.  There will be a moment in YOUR dress that you’ll fall in love and realize it’s the one.  For me, it was when I had my dress on and they pinned the back to give it a mermaid shape that curved to my hip.  I felt myself light up.

I didn’t jump right away though.  I went home and slept on it.  I flipped through my photos of myself in the dresses and realized that some of the dresses I liked were not great in photos.  Granted they were just quick selfies I took in the store, but I’m sure not all the photos at your wedding will be professional.  There are bound to be some crappy phone photos that pop up on social media, and you want to make sure you’ll look fabulous in all of them!

While flipping though my pics I realized that one dress stood out well beyond all the others.  I just knew…and you will too.

Bonus tip about budget

You can find a great dress at any price.  My dress was actually under budget, but I feel like it looks more expensive.  Look for fabrics and details that look high end.  Plus YOUR dress will make you look like a million bucks regardless of how much you spent.

LipInk Kiss Proof Lipstick Review

 

LipInk Kiss Proof Lipstick Review, Red Lipstick

One of my favorite things about being a blogger is getting to test out new things to review for my Starlets.   So when LipInk approached me about trying out their Semipermanent lip color, I was beyond thrilled!

I originally heard about this lip color from my style icon Dita Von Teese who is a fan of this line, so I was eager to try it out for a kiss proof Valentines Day lipstick option.

They sent me a sample of the LipInk Women’s Smearproof Liquid Lip Stain* in Energy Red and Earth Red.  So just in time for the most romantic day of the year, I’ll show you how to apply it, how it holds up throughout the day, and if it’s easy it’s to remove….

LipInk Kiss Proof Lipstick Review


If you’d like to try LipInk Women’s Smearproof Liquid Lip Stain* for yourself, the people at LipInk have been generous enough to send me a discount code so my Starlets can get 10% off your purchase. Just use the code: SARAHLIPINK (good through March 31, 2016) on products on LipInk.com

This video is a collaboration with the gang at the Beauty Gurus Facebook Group. See the other #BeMyValentine videos here.

Christian Louboutin Lipstick Review

Is the most expensive lipstick in the world really worth the price? - EverydayStarlet.com @SarahBlodgett

Is the most expensive lipstick in the world really worth the price? Most of us could never justify the purchase of a $90 lipstick, but I’m sure many Starlets are curious if a lipstick is worth the hefty price tag.  I was lucky enough, because my fiance is amazing, to try out the three different formulas of the Christian Louboutin lipsticks to see if they live up to the price tag….

Christian Louboutin Lipstick Review


To summarize: Nobody buys Christian Louboutin shoes for comfort or practicality.  We (and I say “we” in the universal sense, because I am one Starlet who can not justify the cost of a stunning pair of Louboutins) buy them because of the look, the status, the luxury that comes with the brand.  I’d say the lipsticks are no different. The cost of the lipsticks is really about the packaging, the status, the luxury.  If those things are important to you, then go for it.  But if you are saving your pennies for a quality high end lipstick that has less flash and more function (because true style is a combination of flash and function after all) then I’d recommend treating yourself of a MAC lipstick instead.

Shop this review….

How To Buy a Diamond Engagement Ring… or any Diamond Jewelry

How To Buy a Diamond Engagement Ring... or any Diamond Jewelry - EverydayStarlet.com @SarahBlodgett

Diamonds are a girls best friend… but they can be a wallet’s worst nightmare.  Shopping for diamonds, whether it be for yourself for someone else, whether it be an diamond engagement ring, earrings, a necklace, or something else, can be very overwhelming.  I was lucky enough to get the chance to shop for my engagement ring with my fiance.  It was something I really wanted us to do together, and he was totally on board.  Some people may want to be surprised and think shopping together kills the romance… I say there is nothing more romantic than jewelry shopping.

I knew that diamonds were expensive, so I did a TON of research to make sure my fiance got the most for his money.  I’ve compiled all of that research into one video.

If you’re shopping for diamonds for any occasion, jewelry setting, or person, here are all of my tips to get the most for your money….
